Sure, we have a glut of commercial space all over the Valley as noted by your 4/1 front page story. Chandler’s blue-ribbon panel of experts recommends as a solution that Chandler’s city council shoot itself in the foot. They recommend easing parking, landscaping, and sign restrictions to attract new tenants. Don’t they realize that shoppers tend to go to beautiful, inviting areas? The restrictions are to improve Chandler’s environment. We have so many ugly signs now that much of the East Valley is taking on a worst-of-Tijuana look. Save our beautiful cites. We need more sign restrictions and strict enforcement of them, not less. Same with parking and landscaping.
